Councillor Liz Clare, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for Culture, Sports, Parks and Green Spaces, said: “This is an excellent free opportunity for people of a certain age to take up a new sport.

“Angling is a hugely popular pastime that can help you relax, place you in the heart of nature and help you escape from the stress and pressure of daily life.

“It is an ideal starting point for anyone looking to make improvements to their life and there are positive benefits to be gained with respect to your health.”
